Our expanding coalition says that as long as it takes to change the laws and make medical marijuana accessible to those in need, the Medical Marijuana Benefit Concert will continue to fight to generate more public support!”

Live music acts include Trick Daddy, Grind Mode, DJ GQ, TelekineticWalrus, Tamboka, Nag Champayons, Rhythm Flow, Gypsy Cat, DJ Zehno, Mr. Grim Reapa, Orion, Bodizepha, Sarah Packiam and Marquise FairFusik kicks off the event at 4:20 p.m.

Latin funk by Electric Piquete for happy hour and Afrogalactic / tropidelic sounds by Nag Champayons in the evening on tap

Jupiter, FL – February 7, 2017 – In resuming its monthly Noche Latina (Latin night) series, Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar is playing host to another double header of Latin music on Saturday, February 25.

Electric Piquete are a definite crowd favorite and they always deliver a funky, fun performance,” says Guanabanas Talent Buyer Matt Cahur. “The Nags debut here several months ago elicited a great reaction from our regulars, which made the decision to bring them back an easy one. We are looking forward to it and remain committed to offering the best local Latin sounds to Jupiter music fans.”

Electric Piquete, two-time Miami New Times “Best Latin Band” award-winners, fuse rock, jazz, funk, Afro-Caribbean, progressive and R&B influences with incendiary results.

Jessi Campo Releases La Lupe Remake “Que Te Pedi”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Recording Artist Jessi Campo Releases La Lupe Remake “Que Te Pedi 

Digital-only track first single from new tribute album to be issued July 19
Miami, FL – July 12, 2016Miami-based songwriter / chanteuse Jessi Campo released her latest single today. “Que Te Pedi” was originally a hit in the 1960s for the fiery Cuban performer La Lupe, who was known as the Queen of Latin Soul. Produced by Jose D. Velazquez, the remake is somewhat of a legacy piece for Campo, who self-identifies with La Lupe’s passionate delivery and fiercely independent attitude, and whose fatherGiovanni Rodriguez worked alongside Tito Puente, famed Puerto Rican band leader and La Lupe producer. The single is streaming on Spotify, available for purchase on Google Play, and will be accompanied by a lyric video.

“The recent Celia series on Telemundo included the appearance of the legend’s contemporary La Lupe, which sparked my interest in the artist’s original catalog,” says Campo. “I realized her passionate songs truly spoke to my life experiences and that her emotive style was a perfect fit for mine. It also reflected my love for the mid-to late 60s New York Latin music scene, as well as my Cuban roots.”

Campo, encouraged by festival producer Tony Cruz Sr. to explore the bolerostyle, has recorded what is perhaps the first acoustic piano / vocal version of the classic “Que Te Pedi”, featuring Miami-based jazz pianist, educator and author Mike Orta (Arturo Sandoval, Paquito D’Rivera, Nestor Torres) on the ivories. Further adding to the legacy aspect of the single, Tito Puente, Jr. serves as co-producer on the track.

Campo was also drawn to the trail blazed by La Lupe for women, one of fiercely strong independence. The latter originally performed in clubs around Cuba, eventually becoming the owner of one before being forced to give it all up sue to the political change over. La Lupe emigrated to New York in 1962, where she teamed up with fellow Cuban exile Mongo Santamaria, and Puente.

Her upcoming full-length La Pasion de La Lupe will be released July 19, 2016, featuring additional cuts by La Lupe, including another well-known staple “La Tirana”. It will also feature “Vivio La Vida”, a moving tribute to Campo’s father co-written and produced by Michael NOMAD Ripoll (guitarist and musical director for Babyface).

Piquete Sessions April


New Jim Camacho single benefits Switchboard of Miami and Paws4You

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Jim Camacho’s “Make It to the Morning Light” Single to Benefit Switchboard of Miami and Paws4You

New video features powerful, life-affirming message and the artist’s adopted dog

Miami, FL – March 16, 2015 – Miami singer – songwriter Jim Camacho celebrated the release of his new video “Make It to the Morning Light” with a special performance last week in Fort Lauderdale. Camacho is now offering the single as a downloadable mp3 through his Bandcamp page. Fans can receive it in exchange for a donation that will be split equally between the Switchboard of Miami, which is well-known in the community for expertise in the field of suicide prevention, and Paws 4 You, a local pet rescue and adoption service. Both organizations are registered 501(c)3 non-profits. Those interested in donating / downloading should navigate here: http://bit.ly/JCMMITTML.

Inspired by the beautiful mountain scenery of Giant’s Castle and his interaction with friendly locals while in South Africa recently, Camacho wrote and begin recording the track in Africa, and subsequent recording was done in Miami at Jim’s home studio and in Los Angeles at Fernando Perdomo‘s (Jakob Dylan /Emitt Rhodes) Reseda Ranch Studios and at Jason Hann‘s (String Cheese Incident / EOTO) Bopland Studio. It is Jim’s third single in just over a year and represents new musical territory for Jim: world music. African drums and percussion are a prominent part of the song’s rhythm track.

Lyrically, the song brims with positivity, forgiveness and grace, the main take-away being one of hope. Here he blends his sharp pop sensibilities superbly with the emotional elements that surrounded him at the time. The tune is a sort of call to people in despair to just try to “make it to the morning light.” The miracle of morning, and the solitude combined with the beauty of first light, is symbolic of acceptance and survival. Right after writing the song, Jim was shocked and saddened to hear about the passing of Robin Williams and made him feel an even greater desire to get the song completed and released.

Shot in South Miami and in the historic MiMo District of Miami, the video for “Make It to the Morning Light” was filmed and directed by Juan Davila (2Way Creative) and produced by Annie Fernandez. It follows the desperate plight of a young woman played by Michelle Grand (Ex-Norwegian), and an abusive homeless dog owner (Camacho’s friend and frequent collaborator Alex Porro) and the positive, even life-saving effects that our four-legged friends can have on us. Jim’s dog Rudy also plays an important role in the video. Camacho recently adopted another pet dog Marshmallow from Paws 4 You.

The track features Jim on lead vocals, bass, acoustic guitar and toy piano, his brother John Camacho on background vocals, Perdomo on electric, slide and acoustic guitar, and organ, and Hann on drums and percussion. The video release was properly feted at the Culture Room during an opening slot for the legendary Denny Laine (The Moody Blues, Paul McCartney and Wings) March 10.

Camacho will be returning to the U.K. to promote the new single this week. He will first appear on the Tony Moore’s Musical Emporium show which is broadcast on SoHo Radio Saturday, March 19, 7 – 9 a.m. EST, and then perform at the The Bedford Live on Monday, March 21, 3:30 p.m. EST. Both engagements will be streamed live on the web.

Electric Piquete at Guanabanas’ Latin Music Night 3/12

MEDIA ALERT

 

Guanabanas’ Latin Music Night Continues March 12 with Electric Piquete

 

Jupiter, FL – March 2, 2016 – Guanabanas’ monthly Latin Music Night will feature the return of Electric Piquete on Saturday, March 12, 2016, beginning at 9 p.m.  The water-front venue is located at 960 North Highway A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477, and the event is free and open to those 21 and over.  The Miami-based Latin funk band is celebrating co-founder and bassist / vocalist Michael Mut’s birthday that night.

Electric Piquete, twice named Miami New Times’ “Best Latin Band” (2009 and 2015), is probably best known for its fiery originals and inventive interpretations of Latin and jazz standards. A powerfully-tight drums / bass / guitar / keys / congas rhythm section sets the groove for a fiery horn section, taking listeners on an Afro-Caribbean journey of sound. In addition to Mut, the band also features drummer / vocalist Ed Rosado, Chris Correoso on guitar, Rich Dixon on trumpet and flugelhorn, Raymond Ayala on percussion and vocals, and Damian J. Sanchez on tenor sax and flute.

Inspired by South Florida’s musical and cultural diversity,  Guanabanas’ Talent Buyer Matt Cahur conceived the Latin night series in October of 2015, and launched it just after Hispanic Heritage Month. The night has already showcased some of Miami’s top Latin bands, including Spam Allstars, Suenalo (who are scheduled for a return date April 30), Lanzallamas, and others, and will also feature Latin roots rock by Moska Project March 25 and the Cuban son songstress Danay Suarez April 9.

Guanabanas is an open-air restaurant and bar with woven tiki huts and banyan trees towering overhead and hand-chiseled coquina stone pathways underfoot. A full, sumptuous dinner menu is available, as is a full-liquor beverage selection.
